I love pumpkin! There’s no pumpkin puree to buy here, but I make my own out of butternut squash. And I love it. Specially with oats, yummy

I’ve never tried pumpkin butter! But I would love to use it with French toast, or perhaps Trader Joe’s pumpkin pancakes…

I love to use TJ’s pumpkin butter as a topping for oats!!

Well, judging by last night, my favorite way to enjoy TJ Pumpkin Butter is spoonful by spoonful, right from the jar! It was that kinda night! But I love all things pumpkin!

I’ve never tried pumpkin butter-but reading someone else’s comment gave me a great idea! Pumpkin butter on toasted sourdough bread with cream cheese!


Tee October 1, 2009 at 12:38 pm

I like spreading it on lightly toasted sandwich thins or over waffles. Reading the comments has given me so many wonderful ideas on how to else to try it, I think I’m going to go for putting it in oatmeal first!

Pumpkin butter is the BEST addition to a peanut butter and banana sandwich!

Back when I would eat baked goods (now it’s a special treat), there was nothing better than a fresh scone with pumpkin butter. That tasted like fall to me. Great giveaway!
